Custom Web Design


Beers Design

Run Your Own Membership Website

Membership websites are a great way to build a successful online business, but setting one up can be a real challenge. Beers Design can design your website and set up the membership software you need.

There are many reasons to add a member’s only area to your website, such as offering a secure client area or delivering digital books, audios and videos to your customers. We have many years of experience assisting clients with creating membership websites and will be happy to explain your options and all of the powerful features this type of website can offer you.

The tools I use are easy to learn, and let you focus on creating your content and running your business, without getting bogged down with technical mumbo-jumbo.

Features Include:

Website design and development – Our membership websites include all the features and benefits of our web design services, plus everything you expect and want for a great member experience and robust member management and content protection, such as:
Unlimited Membership Levels – Your membership site can have as many “levels” as you want. So if you want “Silver”, “Gold” and “Platinum”, you can! You can charge more for a higher level of access – all within the same site.
Flexible Membership Options – You have the ability to create Free, Trial or Paid membership levels (and any combination of all three).
Sequential Content Delivery – You may want to graduate your members from one level to the next. For example, members start at Module 1 and after 30 days they are automatically upgraded to Module 2.
Control Viewed Content – If you don’t want your members to see content they don’t have access to, just click the “Hide” button. This works REALLY well if you have a “modular” membership and only want people in Module 1 to see“Module 1 and not Module 2,3,4,5 etc.
Shopping Cart Integration – Seamless integratation with the most popular shopping cart systems including PayPal, 1ShoppingCart, ClickBank, and many more.
Easy Member Management – At a glance you can see your members, their registration status, membership level and much more. It’s also a snap to upgrade members, move them to different levels, “pause” their membership or delete them entirely.
Multi-Level Access – Go beyond just a membership site as you can easily give your members access to multiple levels within your membership (this works well if you’d like to create a central download location).
Total Content Protection – You have the ability to determine exactly what your members can access. You can even drill down and grant access to specific posts, pages, categories and comments for each membership level. The possibilities are endless!
Secure RSS Feeds – Secure RSS feeds allow your members to view their membership material in their favorite RSS reader. But, it also gives you complete control – non-members can’t access the feed and if a person stops paying, their feed automatically stops working.
Subscription Length Control – With this feature you can control the length of time each member has access to your membership site. Now you can automatically expire a membership after 3 days, 7 days or whatever time period you want.
Login Redirection – If you would like to control the first page your members see when they login, now you can. The best part is, you can have a different redirection page for each membership level. It’s perfect for adding welcome messages, updates, news and so much more.
“Sneak Peak” Content Display – Protecting your content is extremely easy because everything after the “more” tag is automatically protected for members only. So an eye-grabbing post title, combined with a compelling opening paragraph is more than enough to wet the appetite of non-members!
Custom Error Pages – When a person tries to access content they don’t have permission to view, they will be taken to an error page. Now you can determine what that page will be. This gives you the chance to encourage them to register or upgrade to a different membership level.
Partial Content Display – Let’s say you want the majority of a post to be displayed for non-members except for one sentence. With the Partial Content Display feature you can hide that “secret sentence” so that it only displays the “secret sentence” for your members.
Much, Much More! There is a wide variety of additional features that expand the way you can use WordPress to build and grow your membership site. Plus, they’re always adding more based on suggestions from their customers.
